to china beginning a string of meetings that would eventually open that isolated eastern nation to the western world. that opening checked soviet expansionism and in a sense was the beginning of the end of the cold war. >> this was the week that changed the world. >> it was also the beginning of china's entry into the world economy, which has resulted in that country becoming the world's second largest economy. >> red china's battle plan. >> but back then the idea of a rapprochement with china would have been rejected as pure fantasy. china was a communist regime that had been fighting america and its allies across the globe. how did the decision come about in the midst of such intense opposition? what were the internal maneuverings that paved the way, the secret dealings that made it actually happen? who better to ask than the man himself, dr. henry kissinger. this is what the world looked like when you enter into the white house with richard nixon. the united states has had no relations with china. we have been implacably opposed to this regime. we fought against them, america

said that there were 970 adoptions last year. china and ethiopia had more. and a little more than 1700 from ethiopia, a big reason americans adopt from other countries is the amount of children available. i will bring in the adoptive parents of a russian child, and was planning to adopt a second child from russia. kurt and ann, sorry i'm emotional right now. >> we understand. >> how far did you go in the adoption process? >> well, for this one, we have been working on it for about a year, and we were waiting for our invitation to travel over to be matched with a child. >> and? >> now, it looks like it's coming to a screeching halt? >> and i said you want your little nugget and you said you want your second one. right? >> yeah, we have one at home, we had such a great experience with our first russian adoption. we were in st. petersburg and the process was about nine months from the start of paperwork and the paperwork is tremendous. it really is. the parents go through a lot, from the fingerprinting to the background checks to local russian requirements, so, it's just a great process.
